Crytek’s Free Shooter Has Mechs, Co-Op And ‘Next-Gen’ Visuals
Crysis developer Crytek has unveiled new screens for its in-development, free-to-play shooter Warface.
The CryEngine 3-powered FPS, developed by Crytek’s Seoul studio, was announced just over a year ago, and will be the company’s first free-to-play game.
The new Warface screens reveal it to be on the sci-fi side of militaristic, too, with a giant mech featured in one of the images – check them out, left.
“With Warface we aim to become the next-gen of free to play shooters that are on par with traditional AAA games in terms of quality,” said Crytek boss Cevat Yerli. “It’s the next logical step for us to bring this new IP to a global audience and thus to our worldwide community.”
Meanwhile the Warface site describes the PC-only game as “a showcase for truly next-gen visuals and production values that have so far been witnessed only in full priced retail games.”
Warface will also feature co-op as well as competitive modes, with the sit touting “a vast and constantly updated PVE universe complete with dramatic co-op missions that reward teamwork and individual skill, and a full set of class-based PVP games for unmatched competitive play.”
Warface is scheduled to launch on PC in 2012 – find out more about Yerli’s thoughts on FTP in our Crytek interview.
